We have always been proud to be part of central Ohio’s great Irish community. The City of Dublin, through the Irish Festival, has provided us, and our families, with many rewarding opportunities to express and celebrate our Irish heritage. To be recognized in such a distinctive way, by the Festival that has meant so much to us, gives us a sense of pride and warmth that is very hard to articulate. We appreciate this opportunity and look forward with great excitement to being representatives of our Irish heritage, the City of Dublin and the Dublin Irish Festival.
